Samsung's Galaxy Fold Redesign Is Completed, But No Launch Date In Sight

Samsung's Galaxy Fold Redesign Is Completed, But No Launch Date In Sight

Bloomberg, citing sources familiar with the design process, reports that Samsung has made two major design changes to the Galaxy Fold after earlier reviewers reported that screen went to Borksville on early units.

Samsung is rightfully taking its time to solve these issues lest it ends up with another embarrassing situation due to rushing matters.

But the Note 10 launch will likely take on extra significance this year, following the disastrous Galaxy Fold rollout.

Samsung Electronics will unveil the 10th edition of its Galaxy Note smartphone in NY on August 7, according to an official invitation sent to global media and partners on Tuesday. Although postponing the phone came as a setback for the firm, it helped Samsung avoid a Note-7-like fiasco.

Lorenzen's career statistics featured 862 completions in 1,514 pass attempts (56.9 percent) for 10,354 yards and 78 touchdowns. In 2017, he launched The Jared Lorenzen Project as he looked to publicize his battle with obesity and help inspire others.

But Samsung was forced to postpone the launch after early reviewers reported faults with the folding display, which halted media events for the device in the Far East. The smaller phone was tipped to be slightly smaller than the Galaxy Note 9, while the Galaxy Note 10 Pro will be one of the largest Samsung phones ever produced. No new release date has been announced, however. The protective film has been stretched as well so users won't think of peeling them off.

The new design reportedly makes the protective layer feel harder and integral to the device, rather than a detachable component. In the first quarter of 2018, Samsung held 23 percent of the market share.

So while it seemingly won't be available in a few weeks time, it does seem like it's not going to be too long before we can finally get our hands on the Galaxy Fold once again. The Galaxy Note10 will be unpacked in NY on 7 August. Bloomberg claims Samsung could soon start shipping crucial Galaxy Fold components, such as displays and batteries, to its plant in Vietnam.

Naturally, T3 will be reporting on Samsung Unpacked live, so be sure to check back in on August 7, 2019 for all the news and announcements from the show.
